Nick began his writing career in college. He spent several years working as a section editor for a political magazine. There, he learned how to write in a variety of different styles, and also the ins and outs of crafting the perfect piece. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Nick discovered his love for cooking, which he felt fostered a sense of normalcy in uncertain times. Ultimately, this brought him to Today Meal. At around the same time, Nick wrote for MovieWeb, where he published over 200 articles.


Nick has a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. His minor was in journalism, which allowed him to hone his writing skills.
